I never bother with timing on a trackday, it bears little or no relevance to the race and puts you under unnecessary pressure.

Turn up and race who is next to you and that's as simple as it gets

can't wait to see Clegg take his first win now tho

My thoughts exactly...BUT do you think it gives you at least an idea of your pace ..a base from which to work..?

i wasnt bothered about timing as all day i sorting out my lines and braking points and messing with my gearing but for the last sesion i borrowed a lap timer because i thought it would be interesting to see how i did.

iv did this track day for two reasons
1) i show up at the track and i get 10 mins to lean it and qualify and end up with a poor position on the grid and as everyone bikes are so evenly matched theres no way you can run with the front runners.
2) when i first started dd i was asking how can i make my bike faster and i lot of you told me to do some track days and this one has helped. the next trick is to do as well as i did yesturday on saturday
